I was in for my rectum removal surgery on Nov 7th, 2013 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. After having stayed in a nearby hotel the night before, things were quite easy going in.
I’ll be heading in for my second surgery soon. This time it will be to remove my rectum. For my ileostomy surgery, I brought a lot of stuff to the hospital – too much, in fact. So this time I’ll be trimming down what I bring based on that experience. Here are some things that you should bring or may want to consider bringing during your next hospital stay.
